Turning Point
Turning Point is a nationally recognized leader in addiction rehabilitation services for young men. Located in Connecticut, we were founded on the principal that while young men in early recovery need continued structure, guidance, peer support and clinical services, they also need to learn how to have fun in sobriety. To achieve this, we infuse individualized intensive substance abuse treatment with a wide variety of recreational activities such as skiing, mixed martial arts, camping, musical recording sessions, paintball and more into our three phase step down model. This unique "phase reintegration" model is a recovery building block approach, where each phase is designed to build upon the previous one. It exposes young men to a drug free world gradually, as their coping skills, self-esteem and recovery tools become sufficient to identify and navigate potential threats to sobriety.
